Laura Stone Roberts | Runtime (33 min)
Once each of the sections of the Peace Cottage quilt are pieced together along with the background-fabric border strips, the applique stars can be added to the sky. Host Laura Stone Roberts shows how to use the templates to trace onto double-sided fusible and how to cut and fuse the stars to the quilt. Finishing the star appliques with an applique stitch insures they’ll stay firmly attached. Peace Cottage not only includes the background-fabric border that goes on the bottom and part of both sides, but also two other strip-borders that go on all sides as well as a rail-fence style border composed of assorted rectangles. Laura shows how to assemble those rectangles and talks about how to correctly add those borders to finish the quilt top.
